This is a first attempt at a whole card, designed from the computer..I do own a couple of crafting cd's but they have never really been my thing, I normally print out the image, and then alter in some way through a more traditional form of crafting.
I bought the " My Craft Studio - Flourish " cd, firstly because I thought some of the images were just beautiful and timeless, secondly it came with meltdust paper and powder which allows you to emboss an image that has been printed on the computer, and I defiantly wanted to try that especially as there are so many fab digital stamps out there!! I have not been brave enough to try it yet, as there was only 3 sheets of paper and vellum..so at the mo I am just playing around with the cd to see how I get on...anyway...(wow I can waffle!!)
The backing paper, image and flowers have all come with the cd..I played with the colouriser thingy to get a monochrome look..why I went with green I have no idea, It doesn't really go with the traditional idea of a ballerina! I printed out 2 of the main image so I could decoupage her...and then I have added adhesive pearls and glitter to the flowers, and finally added a touch of glitter.
This is my entry for:
